Our Team

From the very beginning, we decided to place patients at the centre of the Biom'up project: we are as passionate about the technological challenges as by the human adventure.

Biom'up's success is based on 'know-how', expertise and the synergy of its employees. Having a team that is both motivated by innovation and ready to tackle today's technological challenges enables Biom'up to create value and to work on the development of biomaterials of the future.
